Senior Product Manager - APM Integrations

New York, New York, USA


At Datadog, we're on a mission to build the best platform in the world for engineers to understand and scale their systems, applications, and teams. We operate at high scale—trillions of data points per day—allowing for seamless collaboration and problem-solving among Dev, Ops and Security teams globally for tens of thousands of companies. Our engineering culture values pragmatism, honesty, and simplicity to solve hard problems the right way. 

Application Performance Monitoring (APM) aims at providing critical insights into the life-cycle, performance and health of modern applications with distributed tracing from end-user (browser and mobile applications) to backend services.

As a platform Product Manager on the APM product team, you will be responsible for ensuring that Datadog customers have access to best-in class APM integrations. You will conduct thorough customer research to understand which integrations will provide the most value and drive implementation of new APM integrations for libraries and frameworks across all our supported programming languages. You will also leverage internal telemetry data to analyze customer usage patterns, identify gaps in integration coverage, and make data-driven decisions to enhance our APM capabilities.

At Datadog, we place value in our office culture - the relationships and collaboration it builds and the creativity it brings to the table. We operate as a hybrid workplace to ensure our Datadogs can create a work-life harmony that best fits them.
